Whole Wheat Pancakes

Pancakes! Pancakes! Pancakes! My kids love pancakes.  All types of pancakes.  All shapes and sizes of pancakes.

Whole Wheat Pancakes

Before setting off on this {eat clean} journey I would always buy pancake mix in a box thinking it was too difficult for me to make my own from scratch. Wow, I was so wrong.  After a few botched batches, I have come up with a perfect recipe for my family.  These pancakes are packed full of protein, fiber, and Omega 3s. 

In the past I would make whole wheat pancakes and they would taste very heavy. A friend of mine suggested Bronze Chief because of it's super fine texture. It's fantastic!  It can be found at Wal-mart for less than $3.50 for a 5lb bag.  

  • 1 c whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 c all natural {no sugar added} applesauce
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 2 Tbsp flaxseed meal 
  • 3/4 c fat free milk or light vanilla soy milk
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1 Tbsp agave nectar

    1) In a large bowl, mix all ingredients together until well blended.
    2) Heat griddle to 350-375 degrees. Pour appropriate amount of batter on griddle. 
    3) Cook for a 1-2 minutes and then flip and cook another 1-2 minutes.

    NOTE:  This recipe makes approx 12 medium sized pancakes.
